Actually we have stopped the process of evolution by not letting the key ingredient happen anymore, survival of the fittest. We save the weak and feeble and make laws that give the less fortunate (less fit) help. So no we won't evolve past it. Besides that, the pollution that comes from our beloved cars is the cause of 200,000 deaths a year and we don't seem to be evolving past that.
we still evolve, we just evolve with alot more reccesive genes also. natural selection doesnt have to do with everything and especially not humans, we are a very resilent race. you put a knife or a bullet through anything with a brain even half, or a quarter as big as ours it dead ... 2 pac got shut in the nuts twice ribs once, and in the head twice((at one time, he has ben shot in the head bfore)) and still lived. ive heard of a few cases like that. we also evolve faster than any other species im pretty sure. but anyways global warming isnt our next big threat, it is an ice age ... we are LOOOONG overdue, like 5 thousand years in a cycle that takes like 8-13 thousand years if i am correct. read the hab theory, i think you cant get a summary at www.habtheory.com/hab1.htm ... might wanna change hab to hab01/hab, and change htm to html. havent ben ther for ages, very interesting tho.
